    Blue Dialed Dress Watch Options

    I have a blue dialed 41.5mm Aqua Terra (vertical teak, 8500 movement) that I'm thinking about flipping for a dedicated dress watch. It was my first nice watch and I absolutely love the deep blue dial and how it goes with any situation from casual to super formal. I don't love how terrible the watch is at fitting under a well tailored shirt cuff. I also have a Speedmaster and a GMT Seamaster now, so I'm good on the sports watch front. Naturally I think it would be best to replace the AT with something that still has that kind of beautiful, deep blue dial, but also is a little more svelt and better suited for duty as a true dress watch to round out my collection. This is also a perfect opportunity to venture into another brand other than Omega. My stipulations:

    36-39mm (maybe 40mm if it wears small enough)
    Thickness of ~10mm or less
    Clean, well executed blue dial (maybe a nice sunray or enamel)
    Stylish, timeless case design (nothing eccentric or art deco looking like all the gnurling on the sides of a Chronoswiss)
    No onion crowns please!
    Automatic or manual, as long as it's a good quality movement that is on par or above the performance and finishing of the 8500

    Complications aren't a deal breaker although not too many. I would like to wear it in formal attire and not look garish. Maybe just a date window or a moonphase. I am also interested in looking at something above the price point of my AT. I certainly don't want to take any steps down. I have a general idea of what I could get for a used 8500 AT and I'm thinking I wouldn't be opposed to adding on another couple grand for the right piece.

    With all those stipulations, I'm thinking a blue-dialed JLC MUT or Zenith Elite. Any other suggestions come to mind?

    Rolex OP39. Beautiful watch that should fit the bill.

    I'd consider having your shirt maker give you a little extra room on your watch arm and keep the AT.

    For me, there's nothing that I really love with a blue dial that falls between the AT and the FPJ shown above, or a Moser (see below). The blue dialed Rolex OP is nice (although I like the AT better) and thinner but it really belongs on the bracelet and thus doesn't seem to fit what you're looking for.

    Blue JLC Reverso Tribute Small Seconds. I immediately became a Reverso fan and believer after trying this one on at an AD.

    OK, I lied...I forgot about that Reverso!
